Sorry folks, this was a disaster!! Took over an hour to cook (well, I say cook, it was still very goopy underneath) and it didn't taste that great either. It looked nice, mind you, but I won't be trying it again!

Made it with raspberries and blackberries and served it with a strawberry coulis. It did need 40 minutes in the oven. Delicious!

I made this for dessert after a barbecue, everyone loved it. The cooking time was off though, it took another 15/20 minutes.

A quick and easy dessert to make for a dinner party. I used blackberries, strawberries, cherries and raspberries as I'm not a fan of blueberries. I had to cook the mixture for about 40 minutes in the end, but the result was delicious. I'll certainly be making this again!

Delicious! I like to add a half tsp vanilla paste to the batter. It's scrummy cold, the next day, too.

So so easy! Strictly speaking a clafoutis is made only with black cherries so this is actually a flaugnarde. If you make it in season it is very very cheap. I made mine with vanilla mascarpone cream on the side and it worked brilliantly.

I don't even know how many times I have done this dessert - always go down well in a dinner party or even for a casual mid week dinner...the batter is perfect!!

I made this last weekend because I had quite a bit of fruit which needed using before I went away. The unlikely mixture was a nectarine, redcurrents and some gorgeous raspberries. Because all my round tins have loose bottoms, I used a similar sized square tin. Other than that, I followed the recipe with only a small reduction in the amount of sugar. As others have found, cooking time was about 45 minutes. Eating time was a lot less and two of us polished off three quarters with cream. (Lucky we don't have pudding very often!!) The remainder was still nice cold the following day. I will make this again with various fruits and will remember the tip regarding the addition of a little marzipan. That sounds very nice.

Nice, but...

Do not make unless prerared for it to be gone within thirty minutes of leaving the oven.

Delicious recipe I used thawed mixed frozen berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrents, redcurrents and raspberries). My 3 year old son loved it. Ate it both hot and cold, good either way and I agree with previous comments it needed 40 mins in the oven when I cooked on 170C fan oven.

Does this mean both egg yolks and whole eggs

A fantastic dessert which went down a storm with friends! I used a mixture of blackberries, blueberries and strawberries with a quarter less cream topped up with milk. It looked exactly like the photo and sprinkled with icing sugar tasted fab! I look forward to trying it with other fruit. A simple, stunning pud!
